The worship of trees is a phenomenom that occurs in cultures all over the world. It was an important component of ancient religion, remained part of spiritual life in pre-industrial societies and has survived down to our modern times. In Ireland the roots of tree worship reach deep into pagan Celtic religion and spirituality. Christine Zuchelli explores the legends and lore of Ireland's sacred trees, from Fairy Thorns to Rag Trees, from Mass Bushes to Monumnet Trees. In words and images, this is a fascinating compendium of our relationship with trees, and gathers many tree-related remnants of our pagan spiritual past and tree-related oral history into one place.
